Draft at Capital Alehouse. Medium gold body, nice head, great lacing. Medicinal anise hop aroma. Flavor is hoppy, with notes of anise, as well as floral and earthy. This is balanced by a nice grainy malt backbone. An excellent pils. troopie (2450) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draught. Poured hazy gold with a thick white head. Lekker floral hoppy aroma. Fine malty backbone with spicy and hoppy bite. Good tangy finish. I’m always looking for good pilseners, and this is a winner. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Undated notes: Pours gold with a nice pillowy head. Smells of crisp, dry pilsner malt, some perfume, wildflowers, spicy. Tastes peppery and dry with a nice full bodied mouthfeel. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 21, 2008
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of pilsner malt, noble hops, lemon, other citrus and bready. Flavor of lemon, biscuit, greatvl fresh hop flavor, pils malt, really nice fresh hop flavor. jgb9348 (6511) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with orange highlights and a nice tan head. Aroma of pure hops - some grapefruit and mostly piney hops are noticeable. Medium-bodied; Full of great hop flavour - all with a nice malt backbone - I can’t believe I’m actually liking this Rogue beer! Aftertaste is all bittering, more hop flavour than anything else, but it comes across very nicely. Overall, a damn good Rogue beer, probably the first I’ve had - after 20 or so...at least one has to be good! I sampled this beer on draught at RFD in Washington D.C. on 15 December 2006.

More an IPL than a pilsner. This guy is overhopped to no end. Hazy, medium body with a white head. Aroma is citrussy hops -- very floral, too. Flavor is exceptionally bitter and unbalanced. There is a good pilsner malt backing, but you have to fight your way through a forest of hop vines to get to it. Easily among my favorite lagers.

Tap at the Hop Devil Grill. Hazy golden coloured beer, fast fading head. Sweet orange hop aroma, soem coriander like notes and a massive noble Saaz hop aroma. The citrusy aroma and light crisp maltiness really reminds me of Christoffel Blond (a compliment of the highest order). Flavour is creamy, sweet pilsner malt, lemony citrus and more Saaz spiciness all the way from beginning to end. Lingering soft hoppy bitterness. Really nice pils. If only there were more like this, it could be my favourite style. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2008
On tap at Barleys in Knoxville. Poured a clear gold color with a huge bubbly white head. Aroma is grassy with some bread and yeast. Flavor reflects the aroma. The bitterness stayed on the palate for quite a while. Good beer. egajdzis (6764) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, dough, and caramel. Taste of citrus, light caramel malts, dough, with a crisp, dry, bitter finish. Quaffable.
